Great artist of the universe, we long to find our rest in you. In faith we pray: 

Illumine our hearts and minds, O God.  

Fulfill the longing and desires of pilgrims and all who seek understanding of your Word.  

Illumine our hearts and minds, O God. 

Make your Church inclusive in hospitality and generous in forgiveness.  

Illumine our hearts and minds, O God. 

Inspire efforts to forego conveniences for the sake of sustainability and justice.  

Illumine our hearts and minds, O God. 

Our Father . . .  

May the Lord enlighten us to know what is the length, breadth, height, and depth of God’s love, and fill us with gratitude and praise. Amen
